Janella Hamilton grew up in Surrey, British Columbia. She attended Simon Fraser University, graduating with a bachelor's degree in Communications and Criminology before enrolling in BCIT’S Broadcast Journalism program, to pursue her dream of being a television host.
During her education, Janella interned at various media outlets including Breakfast Television Vancouver, CBC, Shaw TV Vancouver and Shaw TV Chilliwack. Her first gig, right out of school, was as reporter and host of Shaw TV Saskatoon’s community show, go! on Shaw TV.
Janella joined CTV Morning Live Saskatoon as the “On the Go” reporter in the fall of 2016. The spontaneity of her job is what she loves most! Whether it’s reporting live from a fire or digging in the dirt at the Food Bank Garden Patch – a new day, means a new adventure!
When she’s not at work, Janella enjoys being at the gym – which helps balance out her sweet tooth. She also loves trying new things, dancing like no one’s watching and taking in a good movie from time to time – many of which are reviewed on her weekly “Janella Goes to the Movies” segment on CTV Morning Live.
